Well – lads, lasses & everyone in between – it looks like I finally accomplished something! I have some pieces up at Cafe Remedy on 109th Street; they are showcasing the faces of some of the members of the drag troupe I work with: Queer Royale. Speaking of Queer Royale….we are performing tomorrow night at the 11th Annual OUTReach Drag Show at the Starlite Room! Membership is 5$, tickets are 15$; doors open at 8:30pm & the show starts at 10pm! We are the last act of the first half – look forward to getting fit, fab & fruity with y’all! ❤

 

Preparations

I am currently forming ideas and sketches for an art show that I will be having this month of March 2014; kind of an inadvertant birthday gift to myself. I have long thought of putting my artwork out there for the world to see, but it is only recently that I have transcended enough of the shame I was trained into in order to ACTUALLY start putting myself out there.

Long story short, keep your eyes peeled in March at the Remedy Cafe on 109th Street – some small pieces of my artwork are currently up on the walls for now, but March will be a whole new month!

Peace, love & chicken grease.
